Information and Disruptive Technology


Information and Disruptive Technology

Information technology for most of the past 40 years has focused on companies that either the support the development, maintenance and publication of software or the manufacture and assembly of the hardware to operate.  Since the commercialization of the internet starting in the late 1990’s, we have been introduced to terms like block chain, crypto currency, SaaS, cloud computing and artificial technology.

There is a very robust technology industry in Western Canada with a number of companies incubated in the shadow of the oil and gas industry, but are now emerging as large, multi-national competitors.  Couple this with the local engineering horsepower in the aforementioned oil and gas industry, and Western Canada is home to a number of innovative and disruptive technologies that are focused on a number of facets of the economy.

We have a strong track-record of working with technology and disruptive technology companies.  Call us to explore how we can help you with your company sale or acquisition.


Initial Assessment and Valuation

We sit down with each entrepreneur to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their business and provide them with a critical assessment of what their business is worth.

Marketing Strategy

We maintain a proprietary database of potential buyers (both strategic and private equity) and we craft our marketing documents (teaser, management presentation, confidential information memorandum) to each specific audience.

Buyer Identification and Approach

We work with an entrepreneur to identify and approach only those parties with the highest likelihood of transacting all while putting in place a structure that maintains the highest level of confidentiality.

Deal Negotiations

Our proven approach has us leading all negotiation discussions based on the parameters an entrepreneur provides which helps reduce the emotion in the discussions, lowers legal and other transaction costs, and leads to a stronger deal and higher likelihood of completion.

Transaction Completion

We quarterback all the paper work (the “definitive documentation” in legal terms) and make sure all facets of closing are taken care of.

Post Closing Follow-Up

Often overlooked by other advisors, but we stay in close contact post closing to make sure that any remaining obligations are considered and taken care of and any lingering questions or concerns are addressed.
